Victoria Strauss came out of her self-imposed exile (briefly) to Tweet about who? Yes, you got it . . . The Write Agenda. Strauss, the literary midget, made a short appearance on Twitter to post the following (below) to an apparent “flying monkey” recruit (who appears to still be in high school and may be a member of VHEMT: Voluntary Human Extinction Movement see www.vhemt.org. VHEMT advocates: “Phasing out the human race by voluntarily ceasing to breed will allow Earth’s biosphere to return to good health. Crowded conditions and resource shortages will improve as we become less dense.”)

Victoria Strauss has ran her own “smear” site and campaign via Writer Beware.  Remember, it was The Write Agenda that exposed the scams perpetrated by Victoria Strauss and the Writer Beware Crew; which is more than sufficient for Strauss to loathe The Write Agenda.

You can’t “deny” that Victoria Strauss, A.C. Crispin & Writer Beware failed to report the publishing SCAM perpetrated by their own attorney. See John Steinbeck Family Defrauded by Writer Beware™ & SFWA Attorney: The 2007 Scam that Writer Beware™ Didn’t Report . . . Why?

You can’t “deny” that Victoria Strauss, A.C. Crispin & Writer Beware failed to prove that American Book Publishing was subject to a “police investigation.” Which leads one to believe that Strauss may have another hidden agenda. See American Book Publishing: No Case, No Criminal Contact & No Legal Action Taken.

You can’t “deny” the fact that Victoria Strauss and others were “non-vindicated” defendants in the Bauer vs. Glatzer case. See Bauer vs. Glatzer et. al. – Summary of Allegations Against the Named Defendants

You cannot “deny” that is was an embarrassment to have Victoria Strauss as a panelist at The 2013 ASJA Annual Writers Conference.

You cannot “deny” that Victoria Strauss should have been Disqualified from the First Annual Independent Blogger Awards: Questions of Eligibility Remain Regarding the Meaning of “Independent”

RECENT POSTS FROM THE WRITE AGENDA

The Write Agenda will be releasing a sequel to Passion Blew!: Scamming the John Steinbeck Estate: The Case Against Attorney Charles E.

We recently posted an update on the literary midget, Victoria Strauss, and her historical book sales. See Victoria Strauss . . . Book Sales Records Updated. Strauss has indicated that during the Summer of 2014 she will be releasing a sequel to her latest literary flop (Passion Blue), titled Colorsong. Huh? A sequel to a book that is currently ranked 1,092,615 on Amazon? Yet, ROTFL, it received a Kirkus Star? That’s a book that  is selling approximately 3 copies every 500 days. What spawned this literary talent and why hasn’t the New York Times stopped to recognize it? Victoria? Why bother. Maybe it’s time to re-evaluate things . . .  spend some time at the Gay Head Lighthouse on Martha’s Vineyard . . . grow your hair out and donate it to Locks of Love or something. Authorship just isn’t working for you sweetie!

Time to wake up people and begin to recognize the fraud that is being perpetrated against you . . . all in hope of promoting Victoria Strauss, Writer Beware and Ann “A.C.” Crispin.

The Friends of Nancy Steinbeck Expect to Release New Book: Passion Blew!

The Friends of Nancy Steinbeck Expect to Release New Book: Passion Blew!

ISBN-13: 978-1482095159
ISBN-10: 1482095157
BISAC: Literary Criticism / American / GeneralIt (Writer Beware™) purports that it “shines a bright light into the dark corners of the shadow-world of literary scams, schemes, and pitfalls.” Selectively? Maybe? Sure, until the scam strikes at home base.In 2007 it did; and, it’s a SCAM of EPIC proportions. It involves the estate of Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Prize winning author John Steinbeck (i.e. The Grapes of Wrath (1939) and East of Eden (1952) and the novella Of Mice and Men (1937) . . . yes, that Steinbeck. Huge? We think so. Was the failure of Writer Beware™ to report this scam an oversight or a case where they just turned their heads and looked the other way?What did this scam involve? In principle, it’s the kind of material that Writer Beware™ built its foundation on. Exposing scams that are relative to: 1) engaging in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation; 2) breaching fiduciary duties to a client; 3) obtaining an unreasonable fee; and 4) engaging in conduct which tends to defeat the administration of justice or to bring the courts or the legal profession into disrepute. These are the types of claims that spawned Writer Beware™ and its own version of their boycotts; otherwise known as their “Thumbs Down” lists. It’s time for the “bright light” to shine into the “dark corners of the shadow-world” of Victoria Strauss, Ann “A.C.” Crispin, Writer Beware™ and the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers (SFWA). There’s one name we will not see on any Writer Beware ™ list and we’ll let you decide exactly why that happened.He represented “people who claimed they were defrauded.” He also goes by “Jaws” on some of the infamous writer and author awareness blogs. He was also known as the “Authors Lawyer.” His ties to the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers (SFWA), Writer Beware™, Ann “A.C.”Crispin and Victoria Strauss are well documented; he worked “closely” with them and had frequent correspondence with Teresa Nielsen-Hayden. He called Victoria Strauss a “colleague.” Who was this highly lauded “scamhunter”? Charles Emil Petit. Also known as Charles E. Petit, Charlie Petit and/or C.E. Petit. AKA “Jaws.”Charles E. Petit is also believed to be an Absolute Write contributor and frequent commenter on Writer Beware ™. Confidential sources indicated to The Write Agenda that, at one time, all complaints and “cease & desist” letters regarding Writer Beware™ were to be directed to Charles E. Petit. On information and belief, it appears that he did accept service of process for several defendants in the Bauer vs. Glatzer in 2007. Petit never actually represented any of the defendants. He couldn’t because he’s not licensed in New Jersey. He did accept service and then referred the case to local New Jersey attorneys. He was subjected to disciplinary action, by the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission, after a complaint was filed by Nancy Steinbeck who was the former wife of John Steinbeck IV, the son of author John Steinbeck.As of this writing, Charles E. Petit has not made any effort at restitution or returning the fees that he collected from Nancy Steinbeck.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

• Your purchase of this book has helped. Through The Friends of Nancy Steinbeck, proceeds from the sales of this book will be given to Nancy Steinbeck. Please refer it to your friends and family.

• Purchase Nancy Steinbeck’s book: The Other Side of Eden: Life With John Steinbeck. Available on Amazon.

John Scalzi is the current President of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America (SFWA).

• Contact Charles E. Petit, who now goes by C.E. Petit, on his blog site athttp://scrivenerserror.blogspot.com and request that he take the steps necessary to make restitution to Nancy Steinbeck.

Sincerely,

The Friends of Nancy Steinbeck

Oy! The Irony of Victoria Strauss Commenting on “Fake Positive” Book Reviews

In a teen novel, A.C., A.C. Crispin, Absolute Write, Absolute Write Water Cooler, Amazon, Amazon Rankings, amazon sales, Amazon Sales Rankings, Ann "A.C."

We recently posted the article A.C. Crispin is Begging for “Volunteers” to Write Reviews for Her Bookswe couldn’t help to note the irony of Victoria Strauss’ January 23, 2013 posting on Facebook.

Strauss

Upon reviewing Victoria’s latest attempt at writing, Passion Blue (“Passion Blew”), speaking of “[f]ake postive reviews, the 15 Five Star Reviews are quite illuminating. Among the 15 Five Star Reviews who did we find? None other than Michael Capobianco! Yes, that Michael Capobianco . . . the notorious husband of Ann “A.C.” Crispin dishing out Five Star Reviews of Strauss’ Passion Blew! Just so you new authors are aware, Michael Capobianco is a former President of the SFWA. In addition, Capobianco also attempted to discredit our reporting of the C.E. Petit scandal regarding the John Steinbeck family (see below). (See  John Steinbeck Family Defrauded by Writer Beware™ & SFWA Attorney: The 2007 Scam that Writer Beware™ Didn’t Report . . . Why?) Intrestingly, the Five Star book review of Strauss’ book by Capobiano is the only book review he’s ever submitted on Amazon (see below  . . .  click on the images to enlarge).

Now, it gets even more disingenuous. Reviewing the remaining 14 Five Star Reviews most have not reviewed any other books . . .  just Strauss’ Passion Blew. As you page down further who do you find? Well, a Five Star Review from none other than . . . you guess it . . . Ann “A.C.” Crispin:

strauss4

And . . . of course . . . Victoria Strauss couldn’t resist giving Ann “A.C.” Crispin a Five Star Review as well:

strauss6

Granted they qualified their postings. However, as we stated in our A.C. Crispin is Begging for “Volunteers” to Write Reviews for Her Books posting, when you ask “friends” to write reviews about your book(s)  . . .  isn’t it disingenuous?

If their books were selling then the general public would be posting “genuine” reviews of their books . . .  not fabricated  (i.e. “fake positives”) reviews generated from “flying monkeys” at the behest of authors Ann “A.C.” Crspin and Victoria Strauss. Begging for book reviews? Oy!  . . . the hypocrisy! Authors don’t beg for reviews . . . if the work is good the general book buying public will evaluate it on its own merits. Crispin, Strauss & Capobianco should know better.
